Facebook Live now has built in screen sharing that can be used from your desktop. Until now, the only way to share your screen during a live broadcast was to use a third party app. Now we can do it right from Facebook, and it works on personal profiles, pages, groups, and events. Although it does have some limitations, it’s extremely easy to use, and since it’s built in to Facebook, there’s no added cost. In this post, I’ll show you how to use the new Facebook screen sharing feature, and talk a little about some of the pros and cons.… [Click to Continue Reading]
You might be asking “What does a horse in roller skates have to do with free images?” Nothing, really. But I bet it caught your attention!
If you’re like most people, the blog posts, Facebook updates, or tweets you notice most are the ones that include eye-catching images. There’s plenty of proof showing that content that includes appealing photos or other images will result in more engagement than content without the images.

Facebook has a new feature that I’m pretty excited about, and my guess is you will be too!
The new “Facebook Save” allows us to save posts like links, places, movies, TV and music. They’re even respecting our privacy on this one and letting our saved items stay private, unless we decide to share them. And periodically, Facebook will show the saved items in our timeline to remind us they have been saved and are patiently waiting for our attention! Cool, huh?

After you save something you’ll see a link to all of your saved items over to the left of your screen on a desktop, or by clicking “More” on your mobile device.… [Click to Continue Reading]
Facebook Page admins now have 5 different roles of admin, each with different abilities to manage the page. This is huge for Facebook Page owners! In the past, when a page owner set someone as an admin for their page, that person had the exact same rights to the page as the owner. This meant any admin could delete any other admin, which many times resulted in Facebook Pages being hijacked or deleted by disgruntled employees.
That’s all changed. (Yay!!!)
With the new admin settings, only the manager can remove another admin. As the manager, a person can appoint someone else as an admin, allowing that person to only perform certain roles.… [Click to Continue Reading]
Because all admins of Facebook pages have the same rights, it’s possible for any admin to remove any other admin. What this means is that the owner of a Facebook business page can set someone up as an admin, then that person can easily turn around and remove the page owner. This can be a huge problem when the page represents a business.
Recently I’ve had a number of people asking me about this very problem. Some of them have (had) active business pages but because a disgruntled employee or former web developer was able to hijack the page, they’re in a real bind.… [Click to Continue Reading]
